Short Film Strawberry Fields Forever in Post Production
October 6, 2020
Over the Summer I had the privilege to be asked to work as DOP on a short film, Strawberry Fields Forever.
Based on real events, Strawberry Fields Forever stars Golden Globe Winner, Brenda Blethyn and newcomer, Tom Hatton. The film is an adaptation of the tormented short life of Stephen Shepherd, whose body was discovered in January 1967. He was only 11 years old. The film addresses Stephen’s experience with the school bullies that may have led to him fleeing home and tragically losing his life. Additionally, the film explores the relationships with Stephen’s best friend Stanley and his beloved gran.
The film is due to premiere on December 14th at The Curzon Cinema in Canterbury.
Thanks and praise to Directors Richard Andrews and Tom Andrews for making this film and for having me on board.
